Data collection on this website

Your data is collected when you provide it to us. This can be data that you enter in a contact form.

Purpose of use of your data

This data is retained for security reasons (e.g. for investigation of misuses or prevention of fraud) for maximum seven days and deleted upon expiry thereof. The data which has to be retained for a longer period as evidence will only be deleted after the relevant incident is finally clarified.

Part of the data is also collected to ensure error-free deployment of the website. Other

This is done on the basis of the voluntarily given consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) DSGVO.
  • The personal data collected for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted as soon as the request is completed and there are no reasons for further storage (e.g. subsequent commissioning of our company).

  • the data subject has expressly consented to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a) DSGVO
  • the transfer is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f) DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that the data subject has an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of his or her data
  • there exists a legal obligation for a data transfer according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c) DSGVO , and/or

Analysis services for websites, tracking

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics tool by Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files stored in your computer which enable us to analyse how you use our website. The statistics allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of website statistics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

The information automatically collected by cookies concerning your use of this website is typically transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. Google will mask some parts of your IP address and shorten it within the EU member states or within other states - parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. 

The full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there solely in exceptional circumstances. Upon instruction from the controller (operator of this website), Google will use this information to analyse use of the website by you, to compile reports about your website activity and to provide the website operator other services concerning use of the website and of the Internet.

You can also disable acceptance of cookies by your computer by configuring your browser settings accordingly. 

If you prevent the storage of cookies, we point out that you may not be able to use this website in full. Additionally you can prevent registration and transmission to Google as well as processing by Google of the data generated by cookies in respect of your use of this website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available through this link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. That ensures further processing of shortened IP addresses, thus disabling their direct referencing to persons. To the extent the data collected about you can be directly referenced to you, such referencing is immediately ruled out and the personal data is deleted at once.

Your rights

Information
You have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information would violate the duty of confidentiality pursuant to Section 57 (1) StBerG or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular due to an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. Notwithstanding this, there may be an obligation to provide the information if, in particular taking into account imminent damage, your interests outweigh the interest in secrecy. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or exclusively serves the purposes of data security or data protection control, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and the processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organisational measures. Provided that the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following:

  • Purposes of the processing
  • Categories of personal data processed by you
  • Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data are disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries
  • if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period
  • the existence of a right to rectify, erase or restrict the processing of personal data concerning you or to object to such processing
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority
  • if the personal data has not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information on the origin of the data
  • Where applicable, the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and meaningful information about the logic involved as well as the scope and intended effects of automated decision-making.
  • If applicable, in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, if there is no decision by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Article 45 (3) of the GDPR, information on which appropriate safeguards are provided for the protection of personal data pursuant to Article 46 (2) of the GDPR. 


Correction and completion
If you discover that we have inaccurate personal data relating to you, you may request that we correct this inaccurate data without delay. If your personal data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.


Deletion
You have a right to deletion ("right to be forgotten") unless processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression, the right to information or for compliance with a legal obligation or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest and one of the following grounds applies:

  • The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
  • The justification for the processing was solely your consent, which you have withdrawn.
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal data which we have made public.
  • You have objected to the processing of personal data that we have not made public and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no entitlement to deletion if, in the case of lawful non-automated data processing, deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort due to the special nature of the storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of deletion.


Restriction of processing
You may request us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction may be requested for the period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • Your personal data is no longer required by us for the purposes of processing but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • You have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested as long as it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

There is no entitlement to deletion if, in the case of lawful non-automated data processing, deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort due to the special nature of the storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of deletion.

Restriction of processing means that the personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.


Data transfers
You have the right to data transfer if the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1) sentence 1(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR) or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures. The right to data portability in this case includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons: You may request us to provide you with the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance on our part. Where technically feasible, you may request that we transfer your personal data directly to another controller.


Objection
Insofar as the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter e) DSGVO (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest of the controller or a third party), you have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to you at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 e) or f) DSGVO. After exercising the right to object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You may object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling associated with such direct marketing. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes. You have the possibility to inform us of your objection informally by telephone, by e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.


Revocation of consent
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of consent can be communicated informally by telephone, by e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing that was carried out on the basis of the consent until receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the revocation, the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, will be discontinued.


Complaint
If you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority competent for the place where you reside or work or for the place of the alleged infringement.
